Idiot report #6,
Being trying to use the symlink farm. Results horrible.
All source on one partition, binaries on another. If I use the hard link
hack on each partiton the results are what one would expect, nice slink1,
(binary only), slink3 and slink4 (source only) the others a mess. I
mention this to show that the hard link hack basically works for me.
With the symlink farm there I experience widespread failures. Symlinks
are not created. There are error messages to this effect. I have checked
for a permissions problem.
Slink1:- no upgrade, no install, no boot disk image.
Slink2:- no contrib, binary or source. Same with non-US.
Slink3, slink4. No main source.
Slink5:- no non-free binaries.
However, ./tmp-mirror looks good.
Does any one else have this problem?
I have been away for a few days so I have not had time to try and track
down what is happening.
